    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    This also gives you the opportunity to spend some time on our lovely island of Canna and be part of the community here.

    We are used to visitors and we just want people to come, enjoy our island and have a very positive experience of being here.
    On Canna there is a population of 17 people and my family are from this island.
    The nearest point on the mainland is Mallaig where you get the ferry from and the nearest town is Fort William.
    There is a small cafe/bar in the summer and a community shop and we have a great harbour with lots of visiting boats and yachts. Canna is a great place for wildlife, birdwatching, fishing, kayaking.
